Clemson has initiated legal action against the ACC in an effort to challenge the league's Grant of Rights agreement, intending to leave the ACC. The lawsuit, filed in Pickens County court in South Carolina, marks the second such legal challenge against the ACC, following Florida State's previous lawsuit against the conference.

In the lawsuit, Clemson seeks judicial nullification of the exit fee and the restoration of all media rights for games occurring after the university chooses to leave the conference. Clemson estimates the exit fee at $140 million, excluding additional costs to buy out the remaining decade of media rights. However, even if the lawsuit succeeds, there is no guarantee that Clemson would receive invitations to join either the SEC or the Big Ten if it were to depart from the ACC.

The university contends that the ACC's substantial exit fee and retention of media rights upon departure are fundamentally unenforceable and restrict Clemson from acting in its best interests. The lawsuit characterizes the ACC's exit fee as excessive penalties and damages, disproportionate to any harm caused to the conference by Clemson's potential departure. Furthermore, it alleges that Clemson's agreement with the ACC only grants television rights for the duration of Clemson's membership in the conference.
